The Economic Outlook for Europe

Monday, May 9, 2022, 14:00-15:00 Vienna time (CEST) 

Gabriel Di Bella, Deputy Division Chief, European Department, International Monetary Fund (IMF)
Richard Grieveson, Deputy Director, Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (WIIW)


Mr. Herve Joly, Director, Joint Vienna Institute

The Russian invasion of Ukraine created a humanitarian catastrophe. Since the outbreak of the war, millions of people, mostly women and children, have fled Ukraine and even more have been displaced internally. In addition, thousands have been wounded or killed. The impact on Ukraine’s economy will be massive. The war will also have a major impact on Russia’s economy, and to a lesser extent on the rest of Europe. This webinar will elaborate on these issues through presentations on the latest economic projections of the IMF for Europe and a recent report of the WIIW on the humanitarian, economic, and financial impact of the war.

The webinar will be held in English.

Participants are encouraged to ask written questions to the presenters using the webinar’s Q&A feature.

Hervé Joly, Director (JVI)
